What Constitutes Armed Robbery in Illinois?

Under Illinois law, robbery is defined as using force or the imminent threat of force to take property from another. The offense becomes armed robbery when a firearm or other deadly weapon is used in the commission of the robbery. When the offense of robbery does not involve a deadly weapon, the crime will be charged as a Class 2 Felony, which carries a penalty of 3 to 7 years in state prison. If you are charged with armed robbery in Illinois, the offense is a Class X Felony that carries a punishment of up to thirty years in state prison. Further, armed robbery also is subject to a mandatory minimum of six-year term in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

If you are accused of the use or discharge of a firearm during a robbery, the stakes are even higher. Use of a firearm carries a mandatory gun enhancement penalty of 15 years. The enhancement increases to 20 years if the firearm is discharged and 25 years if anyone is injured.
